    A majority of voters said in a Fox News poll released this week that they believe President Trump is weakening American democracy as he and his legal team press forward with lawsuits challenging the election results. In the new poll, which surveyed 1,007 registered voters nationwide between Dec. 6 and Dec. 9, 56 percent of respondents said they think Trump is weakening American democracy by contesting the results in multiple states. Thirty-six percent of respondents said the opposite - that they believe the president is strengthening American democracy by challenging the election results. Eight percent answered they didn't know when...

    A Fox News poll released Friday found mixed reviews about President Trump's job performance over the last few years, with a majority ultimately saying they thought the United States was worse off now than it was four years ago. Fifty-five percent of voters in the the poll said they believe the U.S. is worse off now than it was four years ago, while nearly a third — 32 percent — said it was better off and 11 percent said it was the same.

    A new poll suggests that a plurality of Americans want President Donald Trump to concede the presidential election “right away,” but the figure of 46% falls short of a majority. The new Politico/Morning Consult poll of nearly 2,000 registered voters was conducted Nov. 13 to 16.

    Official Church teaching describes homosexuality as ‘intrinsically disordered’ and something that ‘can in no case be approved of.’WASHINGTON, D.C., November 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A report released by the Pew Research Center (PRC) shows that a majority of Catholics surveyed in Western Europe, the Americas, and across the world support either homosexual “marriage” or homosexuality as such — contrary to the official teaching of the Catholic Church. The comprehensive report, released earlier this month, focuses on Catholics’ view on homosexuality. Compiling the results of studies conducted over the past few years, the figures demonstrate a wide-scale rejection of Catholic teaching...

    Once upon a time, Fox News was the “fair and balanced” network, the video equivalent of talk radio where one could go to get news and commentary one could hear nowhere else, truth otherwise blocked by the legacy media gatekeepers. It thrived precisely for that reason and harvested hundreds if not millions of viewers hungry for the truth and the facts about the country and world they lived in and what was happening in both of them. Somewhere along the way, Fox News began to lose its way and went from a voice crying in the political wilderness to another...
  • The Absolute Failure of Pollsters

    In every election cycle, there is only one poll that matters, and that is the election results. That has never been truer than in 2020. Why should we have paid attention to the polls? As of Thursday morning, the popular vote margin was 50% Joe Biden and 48% Donald Trump. Here are some of the closing polls: Quinnipiac University: Biden 50%, Trump 39%. NBC News/Wall Street Journal: Biden 52%, Trump 42%. Fox News: Biden 52%, Trump 44%. CNN (likely voters): Biden 54%, Trump 42%. RealClearPolitics average: Biden up 7.2%. On Oct. 28, the ABC News/Washington Post poll preposterously posited Biden...

    In 2016, the polling averages showed Hillary Clinton with a three-point lead over Donald Trump. She ended up winning the popular vote by two points but losing the Electoral College. This year, the polling averages give Joe Biden a much bigger advantage—7 percentage points. My polling for over the past month has also consistently shown the former Vice President with a 7 or 8 point advantage.The strength of Biden’s position is also evident in my Battleground State polling here at PoliticalIQ.In the three midwestern states that shocked the world and put the president over the top in 2016, my...

    Political insiders once believed Joe Biden was on course for a blowout victory over President Trump on Election Night, but "the picture has changed" in the waning days of the campaign, Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier said Sunday. "For Trump supporters, they said they knew this all along, in fact, they say it will be a blowout the other way," Baier told "Tucker Carlson Tonight". "I don't see that picture either, [but] I do see a national race that may have some separation [between Biden and Trump states], if you look at the corners of the country." As...

    Going into Election Day, Democrat Joe Biden and President Trump are in a virtual tie in the critical state of Florida. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey of Likely Voters in Florida finds Biden edging President Trump by one point - 48% to 47%. A week ago, Trump had a 49% to 46% lead. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, while four percent (4%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Factor in those who haven’t made up their minds yet but are leaning toward one candidate or the other, and the numbers don’t change:...

    The pandemic versus the economy defines the presidential contest in two key battlegrounds, with Florida holding firm to its toss-up status while Joe Biden leads slightly in Pennsylvania in the season's final ABC News/Washington Post polls. There's little change in either state. In Florida, Donald Trump has 50% support among likely voters to Biden's 48%; it was 51%-47% in an ABC/Post poll Sept. 20. Trump won the state by 112,911 votes out of more than 9.4 million cast in 2016. In Pennsylvania, the race stands at 51%-44%, Biden-Trump, a 7-point advantage for the Democrat; that compares with a 9-point margin...

    Polls show Mr. Biden leading by five to 13 points, but I grew up around here and am dubious. This place — the land of hoagies and Bradley Cooper and Rocky Balboa worship and Tina Fey’s “Cousin Karen” accent — has transmogrified into Trumplandia. “He has so much more support than in 2016, because it’s been four years of accomplishments,” said Darinna Thompson, 49, a homemaker who was talking with a group of women outside the Trump Store. Pollsters say that suburban women are President Trump’s kryptonite, that they’ve turned on him. “I feel like that’s wrong — we’re the...

    With nine days before Election Day, more people already have cast ballots in this year’s presidential election than voted early or absentee in the 2016 race as the start of in-person early voting in big states led to a surge in turnout in recent days. The opening of early voting locations in Florida, Texas and elsewhere has piled millions of new votes on top of the mail ballots arriving at election offices as voters try to avoid crowded places on Nov. 3 during the coronavirus pandemic. The result is a total of 58.6 million ballots cast so far, more than...

    A new poll finds Joe Biden stretching his lead over President Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania as late-breaking undecided voters say they intend to back the Democratic presidential nominee. The latest survey of likely voters in the three former “blue wall” states from the Elections Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison finds Biden nearly doubling his lead in each state compared to last month. Crucially, Biden is above the 50 percent mark in all three states, while Trump remains mired in the low to mid-40s. In Michigan, Biden leads by 10 points, 52 to 42. Five percent of...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden has regained a narrow lead over President Donald Trump in Texas, after wooing more independents and Hispanics, according to a poll released Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler. Biden’s lead among likely voters is 48%-45%, within the poll’s margin of error. In the Texas race for U.S. Senate, Republican incumbent John Cornyn lost a bit more ground against Democrat MJ Hegar. Cornyn’s lead now stands at 8 points, down from 11 in September. Also, in a sign of potential trouble for Texas as it grapples with the coronavirus pandemic,...

    Republican pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News’ Bret Baier on Thursday night, that his "profession is done" if President Trump wins re-election come Nov. 3, and proves the national polls wrong yet again. “I hate to acknowledge it, because that's my industry — at least partially — but the public will have no faith. No confidence. Right now, the biggest issue is the trust deficit,” Luntz said in response to Baier asking how pollsters will fare if they are wrong in predicting the 2020 presidential election. “Pollsters did not do a good job in 2016. So, if Donald Trump surprises...

    A sizable share of Americans eschewed the major-party dichotomy and voted for third-party candidates in 2016, helping deliver the White House to President Donald Trump. But four years later, almost all of the likely voters who opted against both the Republican and Democratic nominees last time around aren’t planning to do so again, Morning Consult Political Intelligence tracking shows — and a slim majority are siding with former Vice President Joe Biden. Daily tracking of likely voters conducted Oct. 16-18 found 53 percent of likely voters who opted for someone other than a major-party nominee in 2016 said they’re backing...
